I believe that the Mike/Telus network is an iDen network. Your 7290 is a GSM device and will not work on the iDen network.

Telus is on a different system

Huh? As mentioned above the 7290 will not operate on the MiKE network. 7290=GSM, MiKE network=iDEN two completely different beasts. Call Rogers if wish to activate the 7290. Next time do your homework when purchasing a BB on eBay.
